Autlioritlea Called on to Scatter the 
Army Which Is Being Daily 

Washinoton, May 7.— Tho trial ol the 
commbowealers was resumed to-day. Their 

counsel said he would prove the arrest of 
the defendants was most bratal, and that 
the police uacd unwarranted force in club- 
bing not only tho defendants but others. 
He said he would ofifer evidence that a con- 
epiraoy existed to OQUTiob tlie defendant?. 
Several witnesses then testified to the peace- 
ful demeanor of the Coxeyites at the oapitol 
and tho vioI(;noe of the police. Coxey told 
of hia efforts to Rpfc permiaaion to speak from 
tho cspitol Btepa, how ho reached tho steps 
and cf his being hustled therefrom without 
boioR permitted to apeak. On cross-examin- 
ation ho said ua ati American citizen he 
thought ho had u eonetilutional right to 

In tho Senate, Allen offered a reai)luti(Hi 
providing for a coiiimitteo of five aenatora 
to invoatiRatn tho facts and oirouinotancos 
couneoted with tho aaaault and imprison- 
ment of tho Coxoyitee, and makinf; recom- 
mendaliona intended to prevent suoh out- 
rages hereafter. The resolation was laid 

ThO|.WaBhington News this evcnint; says : 
"It Is-about settled tliat the handful of idle 
men now in oamp here must bo ECAttored or 
there will be trouble later. Tlio handful is 
rapidly growing. No other army haa joined 
the Coxey band now here^ but it has been 
receiving; stragglers until tho 326 men Coxey 
had on Tuesday last was 529 this morning, 
and by to-morrow will bo fully 700. Tramps 
are coming into the city by twos and threes 
at a great rate. The policemen on subnrbin 
posts -Report atmo»t hourly of the puaaing 
into ti^ city of little knots of genuine hohoa, 
whoare inquiring for Coxey 'a camp. Three 
of Gen. Galvin'a men got here from Pitt.iburg 
this morning and went straight lo tho 
White Hou60. They demanded admittance; 
but as their bearing and uppearonco so clear- 
ly betokened their b id' character, they were 
refused and made to go away. They said 
the " army " would bo here in a few dsys. 
They had come on in advance. Tho com- 
missioners realize tho neccaeity of doing 
something. Various aohemes were taken 
under consideration. Tho beet and moat 
feasible was to have tho camp condenmed at 
once by the health oliicers. This will drive 
them out of tho dump lot. If they will 
not go the police will move them. They 
will not 1)3 allowed lo open another camp in 
the district. Orders will bo given to the 
police to strictly enforce the vagrancy laws, 
and anyone found begging will bo arrested 
and lent to tne workhonse. 


Bill Introdnced in tLe U. S. House of 
Bepreaentatives Regardiug the 
BondiBg Privileee. 

The Subject Discnssed In Committee 
and the Attorney of the 
C. P. R. Heard. 

Wasiiinctox, May 7. — Retaliation 
against (.'anada for alleged diaeriniiiuitiong 
againat tho United .States in the nso of cer- 
tain of her canals ia the purpose of a bill in- 
troduced by Representative Chiokering of 
Now York. The bill is intended to amend 
tho act to enforce reciprocal ooni- 
mercial relations between the Unit- 
ed States and Canada, approved July 
G, ISl)-'. Mr. Chickeriog's amendment is as 
follows: Whenever the President shall bo 
BiktisSed that there ia any dicuriminatinn 
whatever in tho use of tho Welland canal, 
tho St, Ijiwrerieo river canab, tho 
Chambly Canal, the now Canadian 
■Sault Canal, or either of them, whether 
by toils, drawbaeUn, the refusinj; of tolls or 
otherwise, or "liich la or may bo detii- 
mental to the United Statea or any of its 
citizens, he shall have tho potter, and it 
shall be hin duty to suspend in whole 
or in pirt, by proclamation to 
that effect, tho transportation across 
tho territory of the United States in 
bond and without the payment of duty, of 
goodfl, wares and mcrohandiao, imported or 
exportsd from any foreign couuti^y Irom or 
to the British dominion* in North Am- 
erica." The bill was referred to a 
aub-oommittee oonaisting of Messrs. 
Hooker, of Mississippi; McCreary, of Ken- 
tuoky; and Hitt, ol Illinois, of the House 
committee on foreign affiirs. The committee 
this morning heard Mr. Cblokeriog, tho 
authorof tbebill, and Mr. Ray mond, attorney 
of the Citnadian Paoiflo railway, whloh la 
tlie corporation that would ho moat affected 
by retaliatory meaaurea. Mr. Cliiekering 
aaid that the diacriminationa complained of 
dooxiat, and when ihoCanadian Government 
is entirely indopontent of tho Uultod States 
in] the matter of water high ways, as it will be in 
time, the diaoriminationa will become more 
general. Mr. Raymond took strong grounds 
againat the proposed amendmenta. He do- 
med that diacriminalioriH were practised, 
and felt that it would bo unwise to enact 
suoh legislation. Ho laid great atresa on vho 
advantages to tho American Bhippora which 
would result from the use of tho Canadian 
road. Tho oommittoo will consider tho bill 
farther, and will qive an additional hearing 
if suoh be desired.

Yaclitsnieu Over the Sound to Be Hero 
For the CHlebration— Honors 
For Victoria's Club. 

Good Fishiuff "Along the Line"— 
• Those Road Races at 
Beucou Hill. 

American yachtsmen over tho Sound are 
showing considerable interest in the races to 
be sailed hero during the oelebration, and 

nuineroua inquiries are being received by 
Mr, J. G Elliott, aeoretary of tho Victoria 
yaoht club, on tho subject. Tlio races thia 
year are not to bo sailed under tho inter- 
national rating, but under the rules of the 
Victoria yacht club, wltioh provide that : 

" The length on the water line mnltiplicd 
by tho sail area in rquare feet divided by 
(3,000 equals rating." 

The Tacoma yacht club writo, through 
Mr, F. \V. Caldwell, to state that they are 
urrdugiug a cruise of naphtha launches to 
Victoria for the celebration, and at least six 
of them will come from Tacoma beeides 
those from other places. Mr. Caldwell 
auggoata that the Tacoma men want a race 
arranged for launched, and says that there 

ould no doubt bo many entries were this 

Tho Victoria club's now commodore, Mr. 
G. A. Kirk, writes from London under date 
of April 20 that ho has every hope of 
aecuriug perniUslon from tho Admiralty tor 
the club to lly ihe blue ensign, and also that 
the Home office will probably grant permis- 
sion for the club to style itself " Royal," 
Thia communication was considered by the 
c.iinmittco of the club yesterday, when it 
was decided to thank the commodore for his 
ellorta and to leave tho matter in his hands. 
Tho oomniictee favored tho race for launches 
suggested by Tacom », and will endeavor lo 
have prizes arranged should the appropria- 
tion granted them permit. 

The Bellingham Bay Yaoht Club writo 
through Mr. E. B. Learning to say that at 
least seven to nine yachts will oome hero 
from Whatcom alooe, and that Seattle 
yachts will turn oat to a large number for 
the celebration. 


Duncan, May 7.— (Special)— Hon. F. G, 
Vernon, A. \V. Vowell, A. W. Jones, W. 

F, Burton, N. P. Snowdon, Sir R. Mus- 
grave, and Lindley Crease, arrived from 
Victoria on Saturday with their fishing 
tackle. Trout appear to be taking more 
cleverly in the rivers and lakes. Dr. L. F. 
Diek-ioii procured the largest trout of the 
year so far, almost a week ago, in Qaami- 
chan Lake, weight — 4 lbs. 2 oz. 

THE irUEEl. 


In view of tho exporionoo of tho pas', 
that tho crowds of holiday-makera will rush 
upon th» trook during bicycle races at 
l3aaeon Hill, the local racing board of tho 

G. W.A. have recommended to tho sports 
and games committee that the traok be 
roped at the finish for 200 yards along the 
outside and 100 yards at least on tho iiieido. 
Thia temporary fence may aoooniplieh the 
end sought; at any rate it will prevent 
careless boys and girli— • or men and women — 
from dashing in front of oyoliats riding a 
hard finish, at the risk of their lives and the 
almost certain deatruotion of tho maohlnea 
they are riding. 

The ridiculous proposition of a race on 
forty pound wheels haa also been brought 
again lo tho attention of tho oommittoo ; it 
ia doubtful if half a doz 'n ancient wheels of 
thia weight could be found in the province 
in thcBo days of light pneumatics. Thd 
prize liot, loo, requires amendment to be in 
any way aatisfaotory. Good riders from 
other cities do not propi;Bo to train for 
racing, go to the expenao of bringing them- 
selves and their wheola to Victoria, and rials 
theuifelvea and their expentivo mounta on 
the Beacon Hill oirole lor the uhunco of 
gettiog apriz) valued at the eighth part of 
S75. It would be well to doublu tho appro 
prlationa if there are to bo road races for 
wboelmeu — and, poasibly, knook oS one 
race, aay the three mile event.

Labor Day a Statutory Holiday— All 
About Tea— Prohibition Debate— 
Wieksteed Dismissed. 

Return of Dr. Dawsou From Wash- 
ington— Behring: Sea Regulations— 
Montreal Harbor Bill. 

(Ftom Our Own Correspondent.) 
OzTAWA., May 7.— Sir John Thomp^^n in- 
troduoed a bill making the first Mondiy In 
September (Labor Day) & statutory holi- 

The question of tho inspection of teas is 
under discussion. Mr. Wallace said tho 
government were thoroughly alivo to the 
importance of dealing with this subject. 

Mr. Flint, by arrangement, made a motion 
in favor of the prohibition of the liquor 
trafiic. Dr. Roome seconded the resolution. 
Tho debate was contintied until midnight 
and was then adjourned. 

R. J Wickoteed, the suspended member 
of the law staff of the House of Commons, 
was to-night dismissed from the publio ser- 
vice for making unfounded reflections on the 
International Economy oommission of the 

Mr, Corbould arrived to-day for the ses- 
sion. Ho was warmly greeted by his friends 

in tho Uouae. 

The Senate vigorcualy discuaaed tho Mon- 
treal hiirbor bill. Some senators wanted 
the personnel of tho commission changed, on 
the ground that certain of the preaent com- 
miaaionora were too antiquated. 

Dr. O. M. Diweon returned from Wash- 
ington to-day, where, in conjunction with 
Sir Julian Paunoefote, he was conferring 
with the United States authorities as to tho 
enforcement of the Uehring eea regulations 
of the Paris tribunal. It haa been arranged 
that licenses for Canadian sealers will be 
sent to them through the British consul at 
Hakodate, Japan, and by British mon-of- 
war. The blank licenae forma and new fliga 
w hich all sealers will have to fly will likely 
bo carried by the C. P. R. Empress leaving 
Vancouver on the 14th. 

Hon. Mr. Foster gives notice to-nighb 
that wood pulp and emery wheoh are put . 
back to the 25 per cent. duty. Changes 
have been made in the duties on steel, cop- 
per wire, wire cloth, jewelry cases, etc. 


Compromise Measure Upon Which tlie 
Democrats Hope to Pass 
the BUI. 

Duty on Rice Bednced— Many Duties 
Decreased by the Senate 

Washinoton", May 7.— Late this evening 
the Damocratio momberB of the Finance 
committee, acting through tho committee of 
revision of which Senator Jones has been 
the head, gave to the public the amend- 
ments which bad been heralded as the com- 
promise measure upon which tho Democratic 
party was to solidify and, after a brief de- 
bitc, pass tho Tariff bill. Many ot tho 
changes are unimportant and cnnaist of a 
restoration of the House duties which the 
Senate had decreased. A number of articles 
have been taken from the free list, among 
them agricultural products. The sugar 
sohcdulo calls for 40 per cent, ad valorem on 
all raw sugars, and an additional one-eighth 
of n Cent on all sugar above No. 16 Dutch 
standard, with a diacriininating duty 
of one-tenth of a cent against thoso 
countries which pay an export 
bounty. The poluriscopio teat h'jB been 
dropped from, tho tchedule. A provision 
'hat w ill set at reat much of tho diseussion 
likely to grow out af thia section is that 
which expressly s;ipuh\tca that the treaty 
with Hawaii shall not be ontmlrued lo bo 
abrogated or in any n.anner impaired by tho 
paesugo of thia act. Probably as thi5 rtaulb 
of the criticiDm that the bill had been drawn 
on sectional lines, the coniniittce haa re- 
duced tho duty on rico. There ia a very 
material increase in the ratoa of duly on 
leaf tobacco. The chemical achodule haa 
been reconstructed in miny particulars and 
hero, as in the other Echednlca, tho change 
ia noted from ad valorem to spociiic dutica, 
to say nothing of tho increase in the rates. 
The iron and glass schedules have been 
overhauled and the changes demanded by 
manufacturers have .been made, some of 
them not 80 much in the nature of 
increases as they are in the way 
of a re-claasification and the equaliz- 
ation of the duties. Ihe rumors that have 
been floating about for some days, of the 
mysterious influences at work in regard to 
the woolen and cotton aohedulefl, appear to 
have had some ground, for the changes in 
these lines have been numoroua and in aomo 
caeee very material. Coal, iron ore, lead 
ore and lumber %vere not touched. Tho 
lead truat was not the gainer by thoso 
amendments, for there was not an inoreaso 
in tho duty on load producta. Nothing was 
done witli whiakey ; but if all the rumors in 
connection with that article bo true it ia 
/ery likely that a vigorous fight will be 
made to put the tax on whbikey back to ono 
dollar a gallon. 

A Jealous Lover's Deed. 
Ro.MB, May 7.— A young man named

The Victoria amateur opera company re- 
turned by Sunday night's Premier trom 
Vancouver, where tho previons evening they 
gave a most satisfactory performance, to 
which the News-Advertiser refers as fol- 
lows : 

" List evening the Victoria oporatio com- 
pany achieved a complete success in their 
proBontation of tho well-known but ever ot- 
tractivo ' Mikado.' The company came over 
iu strong force, numbering about fifty in all, 
but it soon appeared that their numerical 
strength was far eclipsed by the exoullence 
of their leading people and their grasp of tho 
opera. A union orchestra of local and cap- 
ital niuaioians wero very Buooesaful in their 
etTorts, while tho control of tho director, 
Mr. Pferdnor, spoko volumes for tho atten- 
tion and time devoted to the preparation of 
tbo work. 

" The chorus waa a maatcrpieoe, while ila 
efTeut was considerably heightened by tbe 
elaborate Japanese costumes, which gave the 
stage an appearance very suggestive at 
times of fairyland. 

" The oast was as follows ; 

Mikado of Japan Mr. Herbert Kern; 

XunkiPoo Mr. Qoo. Buahby 

Ko Ko Mr. C. A. Lombard 

Pooh Bah Mr. 0. W. Rhodes

" 'I'he leading part, Ko Ko, wan taken by 
Mr. C. A. Lombard with moat marked euo- 
ceae; hia versatility und natural talento hav- 
ing ample acope for their diaplay (juiokly 
made him a general favorite. Alisa May 
Heathfiold filled tho role of Yum Yum most 
happily, her beauty and voice calling forth 
repeated encores. Her honors, however, were 
almost divided with Mrs. Clement Row- 
landa as 'Pitti Sing,' while the rolo- oj 
Kati.iha, though aomewhat leaa attractive, 
waa admirably taken by Mrs. W. W. 
Clarke. Pooh Bih waa filled by Mr. C W. 
Rhodes with oouaiderable ability, while Mr. 
Herbert Kent and Mr. George Busbby as 
the Mikado and Nanki Poo- called for re- 
peated applause. 

" A happy feature of tbe evening waa the 
appearanue of little Twitzie Lombard us 
page and sword bearer of her father, the 
Lord High E.^cccutionor, the easy bearing 
and graceful movemeuts of the little-onu 
being eBpeciully pleasing 

" It is, however, u subji'.ct of regret that 
tho citiz-ms did not extend that patronage 
which the company, amateur as it i», de- 
served 80 ihorouyhly, and that should they 
appear again noxt season it ia hopod that

Tbe Electric Ligbt Works in BninH— 
Serions Accident to a 

Nanaimo, M*y 7. — (Speoiul)— A*; iJ:50 
Sunday morniDg a fire broke out in tho re»r 
of D, C. MuK>:iizin'u furniture store, lo- 
cated at tho west end of I3a3tion street 
bridge. Before 5 u'ulook tho store. Aid. 
Bftlpb Craig'a carnage factory and the 
electric light worka, both adjoining, were 
totally destroyed. The bridge was badly 
burned, und four buildinga on the opposite 
side — a Chinese Uundry, u smull cabin, Bar- 
rutl'd hiirneta factory und Mra. George's 
fruit store — were ulso entirely demolished. 
A moderate estimate of cbo leas is $65,000. 
The insurance all told only amounts to 

The elootrio light stotion whistle and tho 
fire bell sDundcd tho ulitrin, und in a really 
remarkably short liinu the lire hoys were »t 
hand, as well as a largo number of citix<!ns 
ready to assist. But little oould bo done to 
Stop the conflagration. Tho water supply 
was most inadequate, practically uselcFs. 
McKenzie'a furniture store was burnud to 
ashes without the smuUett artiole heinn 
saved, building and contents being v»lued 
a& aboutS9.000. Some fevr riga were huu ed 
out of Craig's factory, but tbe salvage did 
not amoant to a great deal. Their loss is 
placed at between $27,000 and $30,000. 

Tbe eleotrio light works fared no better ; 
noitiing to speak of was sived. Ko attempo 
was made to remove any of the machinery. 
Tho boilers are not injured, but the balance 
of the plant is 80 badly damaged as to he 
praotioiilly valuelesa. Wenbrun's machine 
shop, a frume building, adjoining the light 
works, escaped enliruly, but a valuable 
stock of bicycles Mr. Wonbrun hid stored 
in MclvDDxiu's building wore utterly ruined. 
The bridgo is in a bad condition aud ivill 
coat at leuBt §1,000 to repair. 

Oa tho other side, opposite McKenzio's, a 
Chinese laundry was deiuolibhed, tho occu- 
pants, seveutecn in number, eaoivping in 
their aciinty night apparel ; loss said to ho 
about ?l,,'300. The email cabin adjoining, 
also destroyed, was worth about $100. 

Barrett'a harnees fictory was also com- 
plolely devoured by the flames, but not be- 
fore most of the stock, uninsured, had been 
saved, Mrs. George's store and residence 
mot the same fate, both loeaea estimated at 
about §2,000. 

The fire was practically extinguished by 
6 o'clock, bat all duy long streams of water 
were kept playing on the smouldering 

Tho insurance companies involved are tho 
London and Canadion, §9,000, $5,000 on 
MolvoDzie's fnrniture store and $4,000 on 
Craig's carriage works ; tbe Commercial 
Union, $5,800 on the eleotric light works ; 
Soottish Union and National, $.3,500 on 
Craig'a works ; British America, $2,200 ; 
Phoenix, of London, $2,000 ; and Pnoeni.x, 
of Hartford, $2,000 on tbe eleotric light 
works ; the Royal, of Liverpool, $1,500 on 
Craig'a works. The buildings on tbe south 
side wore not insured, but the loss is trifling, 
about $;i,00(). As before stated, the dam- 
ages to tho bridge will coat about $1,000 to 
repair. As a consequence of tbe blbzo the 
streets of the city were in complete dark- 
ness last night. Arrangements will bo made 
cither with tho N V.C. Co. or the aawiiiill 
for running the arc light Byalom. Special 
constables were Buorn in last evening to 
patrol tho slreL'ts during tho night. 

It is understood that tho Craiga will at 
once set about the erection of now premises. 
MoKenzie has not decided what he will do 
yet, and your correspondent was unable to 
learn what tho intentions of the electric 
light people aro, Mr. Jos. Hunter, M P.P., 
being at Comox. 

For a time it looked as if the fire was 
going to cross the bridgo aud start Commer- 
cial street abla/.3. Ae it happened, Hp'%rka 
sot lire to tho roof ot Mrs. J. Uiral'a house, 
and it wan only owinj; lu the prninpt meas- 
ures taken by a passer-by thai tho building 
was not destroyed. 

A very unfortunate ncmirrenco was the 
terrible accident that befell one of tho fire- 
men, Harry Eastham, who was engaged in 
carrying hose along the lower stringer of the 
bridge, from the east end, when he slipped, 
falling a distance of about fifteen feet on to 
the rooks below, auataioing a severe fracture 
of the akull. Eistham is now lying in u 
critical condition at tho houpitul. lie is u 
married man with three young chiUiren. 

No definite cauae has been aasii^ned for 
the fire. It is generally believed that it 
was caused by sparks from a stove, which 
was in the hack part of McKenzie'd building, 
and was known to have been ligbCed on 
Saturday night.

Wolfe (foreman) U. Diiley, J. Caldwell, \V.

Albert Cetsford, a tinman employed at the 
electric light; stiilion, gave partieulara as to 
the timo ttie firo started, and sivoro that tho 
fire broke out in the sejond story of Mc- 
Kenzie's building. \V. Jarviu, second en- 
gineer at tbe station, corroborated Cess- 
ford's evidence. Other witnestes called 
threw no freab light on tho matter. Tho 
inquest was adjourned for one week. 


To THE Editor : — I have just seen a copy 
of the netr Fishery Beijalations for Bi-itish 

Clanse 1 says : " Fishing by means of 
nets OF any other fishing apparatus what- 
ever, for any kind of fish without a licenso 
from the Minister of Marine and Fisheries, 
is prohibited in any of the waters of British 

This would appear to forbid any kind of 
angling for salmon, trout, flounder, ood, 
sturgeon or halibut, as there does not appear 
to be any provisions for a license in these 

Clause I mokes a clono timo of four months 
with regard to salmnn (i. e., November, 
Ueceinber, January and February). 

Now, Mr. Kditor, I beg to statu that these 
four months cover tho timo when tho very 
best salmon aro running on this coaat and up 
somo of ihu rivers — and the close time bene- 
fits no camierieH — and is really only another 
proof that reculalions of the kind should lie 
drawn up on tho spot, and not thrown to- 
gether haphozvrd by some clerk at Ottawa. 

You olaiin that tho waters of tho province 
teem with fish, but now we are to be tho 
only people in tho world who may nob tako 
a fish without a license. 

I trust the people of Victoria, VaDoonver, 
New Westminster and Nanaimo will take 

Derby Plug- Smoking 
Tobicco Has No Equal. 
Have You Tried It? 

this matter up and inquire through tbeir 
roproseutotivea why they may not have a 
fresh H ilmon for four months in tho year. 

C;.'>o3o 'i say": "No' nets other than 
' lirifc ne't, ' oh'ill bo uaed for. catching ail- 
mnii of iitiy kind," 

How ab.iut the Lowe Inlot, Alert Biy and 
Oardinei'd lidet cajiuericB V la there tome 
special aut with regard to their seine fishing? 

Indians also aro to obtain pormiBsion from 
tho Inspector of Fisheries to catch any lisli 
for their own use only, and for no other 
purpose. So in future tho towns named, 
and indeed tho whole of tho Bettlements on 
tho coast, who have in a great measure de- 
pended on Indians for their supply of fresh 
Uah, ara now to go without. 

I find no provision in tho rtgulationa for 
angling licenses or for Indiana fishing for 
market by spear or lino. Nor is there any 
provision for tbe protection of oysters with 
regard to a close timo ? But perhaps tho 
Fishery Department consider thoy have let 
this no so long that new there are no oysters 
left. Clam.

New York, May 7. — Tbe week opened 
with o dull market at tho Stock Exchange, 
and tbe total sales were only Iu7,l."i7 shares, 
of which 9i,2S0 were listed and C'2.857 un- 
liattd. Sugar alono figured for over 50,000 
shares. Tho trading was entirely profea- 
sional, and a number of commercial houses 
were practically without orders. Tho 
" bears " made several attempts to 
depress the railway list. Prices rallied 
quickly after each attack, and it was 
not until just previous to tho close that thoy 
mot with tho slightest degree of sucqcss. 
Tho report then gained currency that the St. 
Paul Co. was about to make a new ii^suo of 
bonds and the stock declined from OIJ to 61. 
Tho report was denied, and it was then 
stated that the company had disposed of tho 
balance of ^general mortgage -i per cent, 
bonds held in its treasury for a long time. 
The reaction in sympathy with St. Paul 
was only I to h per cent. Sugar fluctuated

Our ealecnied correapoudent " Clam " 
quotes the first clause of the new Fishery 
K?gulation8 for British Columbia. It is as 
follows : 

" Fiabing by means of nets or any ether 
fishing apparatus whatever, for any ktnd of 
liih without a liccnee from the Itliniater of 
il .rino liv.d Fieiieries, is prohibited in '.\ay 
of tho witerg of British Columbia." 

Tho it i:ic3 ;ire oura. There surely must 
be a niial.'.kb in this clause. It is 
hardly to ba supp-.ised that the boy who goes 
fishing for tomniycods or flounders, or the tired 
citiz*-n who lakos a trip to Shawnipian L^ke 
to spend a few hours ILihiog for trout, nceda 
a llcinao Iroin tho Minluter of Maricio and 
Fiahi ri-.^n. It ciiinot he poaaible that the 
poor fiaherinan who tiiheafor herring or cod- 
fish or any oiber fish within three miles of 
the ahoro must apply to the Marine and 
Fisheritifi Dfp vrtnieot in Ottawa for a license, 
Lioensea (or aiicli lijhinf^ aro not re(iuiroJ in 
any of the Eistura M.iiitimo Provincca of 
tho D.)miui'iu und it ie dillicult to under- 
stand why ihoy ahould bo required 
here. Our correspondent, who hue an 
' «xtensive knowledge of both river 
and sea fishing in thia trovince, evi- 
dently believes that tho regulations were 
drawn up by bomc one who knows nothing 
about tho conditiona under which fishing is 
carried on in tho waters of British Colum- 
bia. And he no doubt Is right. Wo truat 
that we shall soon hear what this retjulation, 
requiring everyone who fishes with any 
Icind of apparatus for any kind of iish to 
take out a lioenae, means, and bow it is to 
he applied. 


Tho ralcpiycra of tliia city in a week from 
tT-diiy will 1)(3 rtijiiired to vote on a by-law 
empowfiriDR the Corporation to raise the 
sum of 535,000 to pay ofif tho debt of the 
Jubilee Hospital. It is evident that the 
time has arrived in which the city must 
ohoose between building a hospital of it- 
self and acquiring tho right to iiae tho 
Jubilee llf)riiit;tl for its own purposea. 
Every ycar'a experience 8bo-//a that tho 
city nceda a hospital, and also that it would 
bo folly to depend upon tho voluntary oon- 
trkbntions of oitizena and others to main- 
tain one which both as to size and equip- 
ment would supply tho proannt and future 
need of tho city. To build und tquip 
such n hospital would require a 
very conaidcrable sum of money, 
and tho expense of maintaining it for the 
exoluaive use of the oitizena would be more 
than the city, under present oiroumatanoeB, 
could aCTord. Bcaidos, there is no necosaity 
for incurring thia lieuvy oxpenso. Tho 
Jubilee Hospital is already built and in 
oporation. It is amply sufficient both as to 
staff and acoommodation for the require- 
ments of the city. A ooroparatlvely Bmall 
aum will give the city what may be oon- 
aidercd a proprietary interest in tho catab- 
lishment and an inflaential voice in ita 
management. A moderate annual contri- 
bution will afterwards be sufficient to cn- 
flure to the indigent sick of the city the 
aoopmmodation and attendanoa It affords. 

it is, therefore, from all points of view, 
better to ulilir.o tho hospital already in 
operation than to build anJ maintain a City 
Hospital. We do not think that there will 
be any real diiffioulty in maasgiiig the inati. 

of the city. It will be to the interest of all 
oonoerned to hnvo it conducted as 
economically as pnasiblo consistently with 
efficiency and the comfort of tho patients. 
The Province having an interest in it, so 
far from being a drawback, will lighten the 
burden for the City and make it easier fortho 
directors to have the hospital supplied with 
everything that such an institution requires. 
We feel euro that tho ratepayers will readily 
vote the money required, for they must see 
that they can by no other way meet tho 
obligations they are under to provide for the 
indigent sick and the victims of anoh aooi- 
dents as are constantly occurring in towns 
of tho eizo of Victoria, so satisfactorily and 
with so little expense as by acquiring an 
interest in the Jubilee Hospital. 


Wo have often wondered what possible 
objection intelligent American oitizena can 
have to their Government's extending its 

aasiatanco towards tho construction of tho 
Nicaraqua Canal. That waterway when 
conatructod muat bo of audi immanao bene- 
fit to the United Stutos, tliat it is a matter 
of wonder why Cougrcaa heuitates to give 
those who are engaged in its construction 
all the help they need. 

A lato number of tho St. Paul Pioueor- 
Preaa statcj tho obj'jctioca to giving Govern- 
mont aid to tho work in very atrong terms 
iiuieed. Thoao objeotiocB may bo valid, 
but they do not pluco tiiu public mou and 
the business men of the United States m a 
favorable light. The objection which this 
very reapcetablo newspaper has to Congreaa 
empowering tho CJoverument to guarantoo 
tho bonds of tho Nicaragua Canal Company 
is, to atatu it pliiiuly, that iho Company 
would raise tho money on tho bonds, put it 
in their own pockets and leave the Canal 
uo nearer completion than it is at present, 
That ia to sjy, it considers that tho 
Company, a leading member of which ia 
Senator Morgan, ia nothing bettor than a 
band of robbers. It denounces tho project 
a3 " The Biggest Swindle Out," and goes on 
to say : 

It is reported that Mr.' Cleveland ia 
anxloun to wipe out tho recollection of his 
Hawaiian failure by pushing through con- 
greaa, with all his might, tho Nicaragua 
canal job. Ac any rate. Senator Morgan ia 
ready with hia report in tavor of having the 
ta.xpaycra of tho United Statea make a 
present of S100,OOU,Oyo to a big conatruc- 
tiun eonip:iny, and Mr. Clrveland haa pub- 
licly und oliiuially favored the aivindle. Wo 
do not think it possible to speak in terms of 
reprobation too strong of this wretched pro- 
poaition to ontanglo tho United Statea once 
more with a ooloaaal and collapsed private 
enterprise. Tho linea of jobbery aro so 
plain, the purpose and inevitable outcomo of 
it all aro ao certain, that not even the most 
rampiint jingoism oan make asueoessful pre- 
tense of defending thoechemoon the ground 
of public policy. 

This is strong oncugb certainly and harsh 
enough in its judgment of American public 
men and American projectors, but there is 
more of tho aanie oort. The Press justifies 
ita sweeping denunciation of United Slates 
oitizena occupying high places in the Repub- 
lic and in the bnainess world, by a refer- 
ence to the way in which the Government 
hia been treated by the Paoifio railroada. It 

Oar experience with the Paoifio railroad 
companies shoald have settled that for all 
time to come. It is clear that the same 
thing will happen at Nicaragua, aa it iaihat 
night will follow day. Tho ground ia all 
ready for I he same harveat. A bankrupt 
company, a great onfanizad ring of tho 
aharpeot miuiipulator.s in the country, hid- 
iiit! behind tho cms'iuotion plan, a aelii'mo 
to hurrali through a gu.iriintio of $100,000,. 
(iOO bunda, uell them, fcteal the prooeeda and 
le;ivo tho canal prae ic illy where it ia and 
the n.-.tion suddlod w ith its debt— tliia ia tho 
great swindle that ia being pushed toward 
Huccesu by the intluenceu moot powerful at 

If this is the opioion which the people of 
the United States entertain of their leading 
men in politioa and in buuincaa, it is not sur- 
prising that they object to Stuto aid being 
given to tho conatruclion of tho Nicaragua 
ciinal. We trust that matters are not so 
bad as the Pioneer- Press represents. There 
are turoly men whom they can truat to 
oirry out a work of thia kind to completion 
honestly, and there muat bo waya of so 
scouriDg the moury roali/, <d by the guuran- 
teed bomla that tlie conipiny could not 
steal it If it svcro disposed to do so. If the 
grants to the Faolfio railways' were loosely 
given, and if the United States Government 
was slack in insisting on its rights, it does 
not follow that the Nicaragaa business 
should be as loosely done and curried out 
with the same laxity. Vto may bo wrong, 
but we strongly suapect that there ia some- 
thing behind tho violence of the I'ioneer- 
Preaa that it finds it convenient to keep 

.SSTiSOO. It would naturally be supposed 
that ufter a few years the pensioners would 
become fewer. Many whose health had 
been undermined during the war, and many 
who had been sufiering from serious wonnds 
would, in tho natacal aourae of events, die. 
But the opposite of this has bedn the oate in 
the United States. Tho veterans of tho war 
and thoir holplcaa relatives have boon moat 
tenacious of life. They have, in fact, gone on 
incroaai ng during tha laal twenty-eight years 
until they now number more than four times 
as many aa they did in 1865. In 1893 there 
were 966,012 names on the pension roll, and 
tho sum paid thoni wus S1;jG,740,-1C7. This 
year, wo aro told, tho roll is larger btill, and 
the number of applioatioua for now pensions 
ia incredible. In aovon months of last year 
no fewer than 55,899 applications were sent 
in to the Pension office. According to the 
last report of tho Commissioner, there are 
711,150 claima, original and for incroaao, to 
bo acted upon. Harper's ^V eekly aaya that 
"the number of names un the pension roll, 
not counting the applioanta, ia muoh larger 
than Was the number of men in active aer- 
vice ut any period of the war. We are pay- 
ing more for pensions than all other nations 
together. Our pcnaion expenditure is 
l\o;ivior thiui the expenditure of the 
hvrgeat military power on earth for ita 
military cHt.ibliiilHnenl." 

Tho United States haa p.\id in tho aggre- 
gate for pensions alooe between the years 
ISGI and 1893 §1,576,503,544, and the end 
is not yet. Tho probability is that before 
tho last pen.<<ion ia paid too pesiaioiicrs will 
have drawn aa much more from tho 'i' 
ury. It i!i believed thiit tho pensions bi fore 
they aro all paid will have coat the Uuited 
Statea at least as much as the whole war 
debt amounted to, and perhaps a good deal 

How mucli of thia ol\ipendoaa ouni will 
have been piid to tlioee who have valid 
claims on tho United States will never be 
known. It ia quito likely that not more 
than one-fourth of those who have been 
drawing pensions for the military service of 
themeelvrs or their relatives have an equit- 
able right to tho money. The pension at- 
torneys formed thenieelves into a powerful 
combination. This is what Harper's Weekly 
saya of them : 

As the peuaion attorneys cot richer, they 
bcoatno greedier, more daring und more 
powerful. They organized a manufactory 
of public opinion. Ibrough organizitions of 
veterans and tbrongh newspapers eetab- 
lished for the purpose they assumed to 
speak in tho name of tha soldiers and to de- 
mand of Congress more and more extrava- 
gant pension legialation to open for them 
new fields for booty. In Congress they 
found little if any resistance. There is no 
more brilliant illustration of the politician's 
abject cowardice than tho puccoesion of pen- 
sion laws aakcd for by soldieiB at the iuati- 
gation of the attorneys, and obaiquioualy 
granted by our Congretsmcn. 

It seems to us that in one way or another 
tho American people are paying a very high 
price indeed for demooratio institutions. 
Scoundrels and cranks who oan command 
votes, no matter what policy they advocate, 
can find men to nerve them slavishly in the 


The New York Times haa been directing 
public attention to tho enormous pension 
scandal of iho United States. Never before 
were the generosity and tho patriotism of a 
people 00 impudently and to such an im- 
mense extent imposed upon. 

The pension policy of the United States 
has created and fostered a vast army of un- 
principled Bcoundrels, tho sole objaot of 
whoao oxiatenco is to defraud the people. 
Tho politicians, when they have not made 
common oauao with tho robbers of tho 
nation, have in the most cowardly manner 
failed to oppose barefaoed imposition, which 
it was their bonnden duty to resist. Thoeo 
who ought to Iiave been the guardians of tho 
public purse, in the most poor spirited and 
unfaithful way]| permitted tho thieves to 
steal from it until there was literally not a 
dollar loft, Tho figures of the pension 
fraud are most extraordinary, and will show 
future generations how easy it was for a 
horde of unprincipled agents to cheat a great 
nation when the fear of loalug votea waa 
skilfully ua'id to eilenoo and to paralyse tho 
roprosontutivea of tho people. 

When the war oloaod the number of pen- 
sioners on the rolls waa 262,137. The

aatiafied when she could not obtain them. 
The mother returns home to-day. 

The loss by tho firo at tho Westsido Sat-

It." c mpliance with Superintendent Hus- 
B.^y'8 r((|UCBt for a report on the case of 
Charles A. Meyer, who claimed to have been 
abused and practically enslaved by tho China 
Hat Indians, Mr. Geo. A. Gibson, tho resi- 
dent missiooary, has written him full par- 
ticulars. In brief, the whole case ia, as was 
believed ut tho tinio — Meyer imposed us long 
aa he wua allowed to upon tho hospitality of 
the Siwashea, I'nd then camo to Victoria 
with hia aoriaational story of cruel treat- 
ment Ho did go borne with the Indiana, us 
bo said, from tho hop fields, and at once 
set himself up ua a grout " medicine man," 
thinking to have un easy time aa u tribe 
"doctor." Tho Ind'ano treated him too 
well, sharing all they had with him, 
and his only complaint while among 
them was that they did not give 
hirn the kind of food ho liked, though they 
cave him tho best thoy had. Sovorul times 
ho waa oirorod work by the white residents, 
but ho preferred to live with and at tho ex- 
pense of tho Indians, until Indian Agent 
Todd decided not to allow him to impose 
upon them any longer. He certainly wua 
far from well, and thia may account for 
his failure to appreciate tho many kindness- 
oa shown him. After narrating all the facts 
of tho case, Mr. Gibson conoludoa hia report 
in the following words : " I much regret 
that auoh a report should have been pub- 
lished before tne f«at8 jvero known, and I 
conaider that Mr. .Meyer has done ns a grave 
injuatioe if he liaa not aokoowlodged the 
kindneaa he haa received from us and other 
white men, to say nothing of the Indians, 
and I am also sorry to have to give such a 
report, which is no credit to Mr. Meyer."

A United Press dispatch of last evening 
from San Franotaoo aaya : " There haa been 
in circulation to day a rumor that the Bio 
Janeiro had brought tidings of tho loaa of 
the sealing sohoonor Mattio Turner with all 
on board. Captain Lorcntz, tho managing 
owner of tho Turner, when seen about it, 
expressed the boliuf that the report bad no 
foundation. He produced a letter received 
by tho Janeiro, which stated that the 
schooner Mascott had boon reported bottom 
up by tho schooner Louia Olaen ; tho same 
letter reported tho Muttio Turner with a 
catch cf .'SUO seals. Captain Lorentz re- 
maiked that there were two sealers 
out thia year bearing very similar 
namea — tho Matott, of ,San Fran- 
oisco, and tho MascotjO, of Victoria. 
He was inclined to the belief that the vessel 
sighted by the Louis Olsen was tho Viotoria 
Masootte." [The latter veaael. Captain 
Sieward commanding, with Captain Law- 
rence as mate, and a crew of eight whites, 
loft here in Janutury ior a coast hunting 
tri[). Her intention was to pick up twelve 
or more Indian huntera at Massct, Q. C. I., 
then proceeding to the north, and posaibly 
running ucroea and paying a visit to Urqu- 
hurt'd bauka, where seals ace said to be 
plentiful. Pursuing this course she would 
h irdly run across tho track of any others 
of the fleet, operating in Jupunesc waters, 
and it ia therefore highly improbable tbut 
she ia the veodol thiit hus come to grief. The 
only cause of uneanineas wtth those in Vic- 
toria intercaled in the sclioouer arises from 
tho fact that uho haa not been reported einco 
aho left here — though even this should not 
occasion any alarm when tho plans mapped 
out for her uro given a moment's considera- 
tion ] 


Everything about the marine railway in 
Eequimalt was in readiness for the largo 
Btoum collier Wellington when she arrived 
from San Francisco on Sunday afternoon. 

Consequently, after the vesasl was once ad- 
justed on tho cradle, it waa only about ten 
minutes before she was high and dry. Tho 
quickness with which the vessel was hauled 
up is a great thing for tho ways, for tho 
Btoumahip ranks among the large ones on 
tho coast. No time waa loat in commencing 
the veaael'd overhauling, once she wag out 
of the water, for a largo gang of men were 
immediately sot to work, and it ia expected 
she will bo ready for launching iiisido of a 
few days. When she comes oil tho ways, 
it is expected that the bark Richard III, 
now in Eequimalt for the purpose, will go 
on for similar treatment. 


The monthly freight and shipping report 
of R. P. Rithet & Co,, Ltd., for April, 
notes : " Tho period covered by our circular

almost nothing has been done. At tho

nominal at 91 to 'I'm. for spot, and

Mission, May 5. — (Special) — A ineoting 
of a numbur of peraona oppoBod to the pres- 
ent provinoUl goveramenli traa held here 
tbis afternoon, for the purpose of naming a 
candidate to oonteat the riding of Dewdney 
in the intereat of the opppaition. A. W . 
Been prealded, The rivalry of General 
Kinohant, who bad been a keen aspirunt for 
the Beat which otbera of the oppcsition 
thought should be oonteated for by G. B. 
Sword, M P.P., promised to make the pro- 
oeedinga of the meeting more than usually 
intetestiog. Qeneral Kinchanl'ti ardor had 
boon cooled, however, by a cinvnsa of the 
riding, unii us before the meoting opeuod ho 
had BigniQeci hisi willitignoaa to withdraw, the 
first reaoluiiou offered was quo in priiiae of 
hia "fidelity to the piirty" and of 
thunka "for valuable sorvicoa rond 
crod to llio Iiidepondent cauee," 
coupled wit h a recoguilion of hia " tkill to 
organise and coucontralo tlFort" and the 
fervent hope " that his ability may early 
find Bcopii oa legislator and couiinollor." 
This rcHolui.iiin was moved by J. Wright, 
and the General thua went upon the retired 
liat of candidates aniidat loud applauao. In 
hia apeech he adniitled that in eaiivuasing 
the riding ho had unexpectedly found utroug 
feeling iu favor of the Hovornnienl, and that 
ho had inadvertently made tho ac([U:untat!ec 
of ardent supporters of tho guvernmei.t 
whose ooDViotions remained uualiaUen hy 
hia olotir.onoe. He advised thorough orgaii- 
izition u3 a necessity if the opposition hoped 
to niuko u strong flght on behalf of their 
cundidato. He eondemued tbo government 
for what they had omitted to do rather than 
for whut they had done, except iu tlie caae 
of the new parliument buildings, for 
whiah he called upon tho eleoiora to 
join in the oondenmation. This scDliment 
hia hearers applauded, and the applause 
waa renewed when he explicitly declared 
bis intentien nf oaaiating Mr. Sword, whom 
be advised the meeting to nominate. Col. 
Jaggers followed with a criticism oi the 
former members for the district for not 
visiting their constitnents. Then a motion 
was passed formally inviting Mr. Sword to 
contest the district, E. A. Atkins followed, 
also condemning the government for the par- 
liament buildiug9,and for spending money on 
railways. Secretary Lizonby took ocotiaion 
to say that he would have been glad to see 
General Kinchant in t(ie field were tho 
riding a safe one for him, which seemed 
doubtful. He wanted to know, on behalf of 
himself and follow delegates, what position 
Mr. Sword would occupy towards Hon. Mr. 
Beaven's party. Mr. Sword replied that 
tho leaderahip would bo decided after they 
found who would be elected ; and tho 
wisdom of tho re))Iy favorably 
impreeaing tho meeting they unan- 
imously endorsed Mr, Sword, who 
made a speech accepting the nomination 
and declaring his views. Ho said the Da- 
vie government most deserved censure for 
their action with respect to tho parliament 
buildings, which he claimed had been under- 
taken with tho permanent location of tho 
capital at Victoria as the main object. Tho 
Nukunp it Slocan railway matter ho 
thoui{bt bad been conducted in an " un- 
businesslike" way, and on this account 
also he asked the condemnation of tho gov- 
ernment. Then he feared the government 
if returned would endeavor to secure the 
building of the Canada Western railway, 
and he objected to the province incurring 
liability on this account. He declared him- 
self against bocussing any more railroads, 
though he made tbo rather iodefinite 
and conflicting admitaion tisat the 
government should " assist a rail- 
way with their credit to some 
extent." Mr. Cotton, M.P.P., spoke next, 
and gave Mr. Sword a certificate of char- 
acter. After a vote of thanks for his speech 
had luen tendered Mr. Cotton by a gnntle- 
man who aaid ho considered it " tho best he 
had heard iu Ikitiah Columbia," Mr. Cotton 
modestly accepted the palm for oratory, and 
explained that ho had to do hia best hec-iuae 
in hia capacity as " leader of tho party " he 
might be said to represent all conatituon- 
oies I Af '.er an e.'cohango of votes of thanks 
tho meeting adjourned. 

Reveij5ToivK, May 2. — (Special) — A meet- 
icg was held nere last evening for the pur- 
pose of considering the candidature of 
Robert Howson for tho North riding of 
West IvDOtenay, it being fairly attended, 
with A. Craig in the chair. Mr. Howson being 
invited to declare himself, said ho meant to 
take »u independent stand and would give 
his support to anything that would bo for 
the benefit; of the district. He would later 
explain what he thought of the government 
and of the opposition. H. A. Brown fol- 
lowed, expressing the opioiun that tbo meet 
ing was rather prematurely held in tho ab- 
aenoe of Mr. Kellie, M.P.P. Robert Tapping 
said he had thought of coming out himself 
as an iodependent candidate, but if Mr. 
Kellie sought re election he would at once 
retire in that gentleman's favor. F. Fraeer 
spoke on behalf of Mr. Kellie, who ho said 
intendHd to bo a omdidate if a petition now 
in circulation received a sullicient number 
of signatures. After a niinibor of ihnse 
present had stood up in endoroation of Mr. 
Howaon'a candidature tho meeting ad-

called by Major Mutter waa held at the 
Shawnigan Lake school house on Saturdnj

atanding a.s to the place. Major Mutter an- 
nounced hia intention, if elected, to give the 
government a general support, and with 
reference to the misunderstanding which 
occurred at the Duncan meeting he read the 
following letter.

fishing will be porniicted by vesprls of the

milfS. The treaty was sent to tho Senate 
to-day while it was in t.veoutive session, and 
the only dodnite action taken on it wus to 
refer it to the committee on foreign relations. 
Senator Morpjan took oooaaion to briifly ex- 
plain the doonment, sayini; that this was the 
first f rnits of the efforts of the United States 
and Great Britain to get other nations to 
co-operate with them in tho efTort to pre- 
tuivo seal life. There is also an iffjrt to 
brini; Japan into tho compact, but no such 
progress baa been rnado in tho negotiations 
as that with Rasaia. The document pro. 
vides for penalties for its violation. No op- 
poaition whatever has so far been made

wero clrcumstancea which It was noeesa.iry in 
the interests of tho public to cloarup. and ilio 
only way by which this could bo 
douo WIS by tho holding of an in-

that the aci ion of tho corouor cm be considered 
unreasonable, and it Bcems niipoaed to the duo

Aj.d Bakkii could not sen why in tho low 
state of the ciiy fiiuds tho tiro horses could 
not bo used for spriokling tho airoet. Hi 
hoped tho fire wardens would take tho mat 
ter into con-iideration. 

Ald. Vi(iELii;.s thereupon changed his 
motion to refer the tender to the tiic ward 
ens and street comtnitteea to act. 

Ald DwYEit thought like Aid. Baker 
that eomething could bu saved in tho way 

Al-D MuN.N' remarked if the council 
wanted to use tho fire horses tliia way they 
should take the responsibility thctiiselveH, 
and not place it on tbo fire wardens. He 
could not see so muoh'to commeud it as 
some other aldermen did. In lighting Gro 
time ia everything, and if they wero going 
to scatter the lire liorses all over the ciiy. 
tbf-y might find they were in the long run 
losers by it. 

Fmally, on motion of Aid. Dwyer, it was 
decided that one fire team bo used on the 
sprinkler in the centre of the city and the 
tenders for the other team ho rtterred to 
tho til's warders and strceta cuiiimittee to 
award to tho lowest bidder. 

On motion of Aid. Munn, seconded by 
Aid. Iltin is, the following amendment to ihe 
Health by-law was inlrnduovd in place of

convenient and boneticial to tho preservation

clothing and fclioct?!." 

Tho by-law was put through tho various 
Btagca and passed. 

Al.l) KlUTH moved, seconded by 
Aid. Ledinghatn, his rcBolutiona already 
published in regard to suweraKe oommia- 
aioners' appointments and for levying a rate 
for sewerago conatruction. 

Ald. KiiiTii-Wii^so.v explained this wau 
to let people know boforo thoy voted on tho 
sewerage by-laiv what would bo done with 
tho money. 

Ald, Bakeu was not in favor of coniniii- 
sioners. The couooil could carry out the 
work just as well without them. 

Ald. Huhfkbbys favored commissioners 
as likely to give mute aatitfaotion and to be 
more eoonomioal. 

Ai.n Hahris was also in accord with Aid. 
Keith- Wilson in appointing oommtasionors, 
who would nee that the money was expended 

iu ll,e picticulur district where the work 

was rcfjuired. : , , . 

Ills Wciu.siiir was also diatiiicUy'in favor 

of tills provimoa. 

Al.l). LuDtNoiiAM wanleil to know wliothor 
fni eigiiersor city workineii were tnlie employ- 
ed, hsa pond deal of disBiitisfaclion in that re- 
pect had been caused ou tho other sewer 

i\i.i>. Kkith Wu-son said that very 
reauuii aciu aed him lu atkiog that the oon* 
tracts bo .luiiUl ones so as to give the city 
worlcuien a eluiiice,. 

Al.n DwvKU tlioui^ht in the ohho of con- 
tracts a cI<.uho shoulil ba iosiined that the 
men eiriplnyed should be to tho sulitfaction 
of tho Cjuiii'il. 

Al.t-i. Mii.s.N believed the Council 
could spend money just aa oconomically us 
oommissionera. However, n largo portion of 
tho coriiinuuiiy thought difl'erontly and that 
no doubt was tho reason of Aid. Wilson's 
resolution. For that reason only he would 
support the resolution. 

The resolution was carried. 

The proposition of tho Diocesiut Synod in 
regard to making over their ground at Rosi 
Bay to the city for cemetery purposes waa 
again taken up at. the request of Aid. 

Ald Vioelids finally moved that the 
ofTor be accepted, except that no refund of 
taxea bn granted. Carried. 

The Finance committee's report reoom - 
mending appropriations of $2,821, was 

The Bleotrio Light committee recom- 
mondnd that Mr. C. H. Stiokels be given 
charge of the constructioD and putting in of 
the new electric plant provided for by tho 
electric light by-law, at a salary of $8 a day 
for each day emnloyed. 

Ald. IvEtTii-WiLSON wanted a special 
meeting to hear tho plana that the oommit- 
teo intended to undertake. 

Al.l). Mti.NN e.x[)lained that a meeting of 
tho conirnittee on .Saturday had laid out a 
plan, and now asked that Mr. Stickola bo 
employed to fiiperintend tho work. Mr. 
Sf iekels was only to bo paid for eaoh day ho 
wuH nclually employed. 

His Woiisiiii' remarked that before any- 
thing could b-j intellijently put before tbo 
council it would bo neccBsary to arrange tho 
site, miichinery, etc. Gonscciuently ho 
could not tee what could otherwise bo done 
more than to provido for secuiiot; Mr. 
Stickols' servicea in tho meantime. Nothing 
would bo done in purchauiug material or 
anvihini; of that kind till it was fiist laid 
beforo the oounoii. 

I'ho rcsolntion was carried. 

Tho Sewerage committee reported that 
tho provisions of tho sewerage by-law for 
requiring houno connections be enforced, 
and $200 be appropriated to test the ques- 
tion. Adapted. 

The Streets committee report on minor 
matters was adopted, 

Ald STV1.E.S moved that tenilers be called 
for 'ilO tons of water pipe, tenders not to be 
in later than Ist July, Carried. 

Tho council went into eomroitteo on the 
hawkers and poddlera amendment by-law. 
It provides chii Hy that the license bo §20 
for every six months. The committee stage 
was finiuhed and the by-law passed. 

Ai.d. .Stvi.k.s brought up the ofFer of cer- 
tain residents of Fort htreet of a, portion of 
land for widening the street. Some ollijer 
should bo named, he thought, to ascertain 
wliat amount of land tho residents of that 
street would civo to widen the street. 

His N^'ciummi' said ho would, tell the 
assepsor to do so. 

At the sug^inKtion rf Aid. Munn it waa 
deciiled to adjourn till next evening for the 
purpono of putting the health by-law 

AM). Bakki'. brcught up the rC(|ueBt from 
the tSjhool Trustees for a road to the beach 
at Moss street. Ho insisted that it bad 
been referred to the City Kni<inepr to find 
tho cost and report, but the Ciiy (Jlerk read 
tho minutes to show it wua lost ut last meet- 

Ald Baker then intimated that ho will
